triangle productions! is proud to present the West Coast Premiere of WHAT EVERY GIRL SHOULD KNOW Directed by Donald Horn Written by Monica Byrne In a Catholic reformatory in 1914, three teenage girls (Anne, Theresa, and Lucy) pass the time with masturbation rituals, though they're innocent of the "sinful" nature of their act. Then a belligerent new girl, Joan, shows up, bearing illegal contraband: birth control materials distributed by the woman's rights activist Margaret Sanger [founder of Planned Parenthood]. The girls start reading the material and jokingly pretend to venerate Sanger as a saint, but then undergo a profound conversion experience.

Upcoming Performance about Earthquakes and Preparedness in Portland Faultline Ensemble, a new collaborative of artists and health workers, will perform an original play about earthquake preparedness and community health in Portland. Tickets are a suggested donation of $5-20, with no one turned away for lack of funds. To reserve, email FaultlineTickets@gmail.com or show up at the door. Reservations are recommended. This will be the second run of this original work about loss and survival in post-earthquake Portland. Weaving stories of disaster, gentrification, health access, addiction, recovery and resilience, it played to sold out houses in 2014. This series includes several post-show discussions to address questions of earthquake preparedness and disaster relief. Please check www.facebook.com/faultlineensemble for a schedule of discussions. Portland sits on a fault due to rupture in upcoming years, causing widespread damage throughout the Pacific Northwest. This collaboratively developed and extensively researched performance questions the nature of our city’s preparedness, explores the psychological impact of disaster, and reveals the lessons disasters can teach us about our own communities. Please join us for this conversation. Holding onto the Sky is supported by the Peninsula Oddfellows, individual donations and a grant from The Pollination Project. For tickets and more information please contact (650) 814-5519 or FaultlineTickets@gmail.com

Come make Valentines with us! There are a lot of people in Portland who, in their own way, make the city better for biking. Many of them don’t get recognition and some don’t even realize how much they’re helping. This is why the Bicycle Transportation Alliance has a long-held tradition of giving handmade, personalized Valentines to these people. In previous years, we have sent valentines to Stakeholders on NE Multnomah Blvd, PBOT’s Signals and Street Lighting Department, and Franz Bakery drivers and mechanics. We don’t want to announce who, exactly, will be receiving BTA Valentines this year but if you come help us make them, you’ll find out!

Contamination in the water and sediments that is harmful to human health has been documented by over 100 years of industrial activity. A panel with key players will speak. Sponsored by League of Women Voters of Portland and co-sponsored by the Citizens' Utility Board of Oregon.

This “Cleaning up the Willamette River at the Portland Harbor Superfund Site” meeting being organized by the League and CUB, will prepare the people of our area for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA or EPA) “information and discussion sessions” being held starting February 4th, and for the subsequent public comment period. These “sessions” by the EPA will engage the public, prior to the cleanup plan being released this spring. The plan study area extends from the Columbia Slough to the Broadway Bridge. A list of EPA “information and discussion sessions” can be found at http://go.usa.gov/3Wf2B. It is not yet time for the plan or public comment. But it is time to engage with EPA to learn more at these “information and discussion sessions.” The Portland Harbor Superfund Site resulted from over 100 years of industrial activity. The EPA has documented contamination in the water and sediments that is harmful to human health. EPA placed the Portland Harbor on the National Priorities List in 2000. The League and CUB-sponsored program will provide the community with an opportunity to hear from the key players involved in the process: Cami Grandinetti and Kristine Koch, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Leotis McCormack, Nez Perce Tribal Government Executive Committee Chaplain Barbara Smith, Lower Willamette Group, a coalition of responsible parties including businesses and public agencies that came together to participate in the investigation of the site Bob Sallinger, Audubon Society of Portland, Portland Harbor Community Advisory Group (officially designated advisory committee) Oregon Department of Environmental Quality representative will participate in the Q & A. Janice Thompson, CUB Consumer Advocate, will moderate the forum. http://www.facebook.com/events/1182319888459778/

THE BODA BODA THIEVES Directed by Donald Mugisha Uganda, 2015 , 85 min. The Boda Boda Thieves is the latest film by Donald Mugisha, whose earlier film Divisionz screened at the 20th CFAF in 2010. This film is his Ugandan homage to the classic Italian neorealist film The Bicycle Thief (1948) by Vittorio De Sica. A boda boda is a motorcycle taxi and is the only way to get around in Uganda. The term originates from the English words “border-to-border” and is also a metaphor for finding a way around obstacles. The film is about a small family eking out a living in one of the ghettos of Kampala, Uganda’s capital city: a father, mother and their 15-year-old son Abel, who some years ago left their rural village in the footsteps of thousands of other villagers from around the country in search of a better life in the city. They have not had an easy time of it. When Abel’s father sustains an injury as a boda boda driver, he is forced to turn over the keys to his inexperienced son so he can earn money for the family to live on and, more importantly, to continue paying the debt they owe on the boda boda. Things soon go very wrong. In Luganda with English subtitles. Not suitable for children.

CAIRO TIME Directed by Amir Ramses Egypt, 2015 , 110 min. Three stories take place over the course of a single day in Cairo. Lila, a retired actress, is looking for Sameh, her former onscreen co-star. Next we meet Salma and Wael, an unmarried couple who borrow a friend’s apartment for private liaisons. We then meet Hazem, a young drug dealer on the run from Alexandria to Cairo who picks up an old man with Alzheimer’s disease in search of a former love. The six characters find themselves at decisive points of their lives, which although disparate, are brought together by destiny, and are brought out through pitch-perfect performances by Egyptian cinematic legends. In Arabic with English subtitles. Not suitable for children.

It was 2001 when Dylan Dean found an art store near his first apartment in Trieste, Italy. It was the empty space on his walls that drove him to paint. Or maybe it was Italy. Spaces on the wall still inspire Dylan, but so do peoples' quirks, cityscapes, suggestion and movements. The current works represent a range of his experiences from his thoughts on his wife's pregnancy with their twins to the performances of his local band, Mbrascatu to the sadness of some of the patients he sees as an Emergency Physician to the clumsiness, curiosity and celebration that can grace life's experiences. He is honored to share these works with you at the Red E Cafe. http://www.facebook.com/events/1683011888607535/

BEATS OF THE ANTONOV Thursday Evening Documentary Films Directed by Hajooj Kuka Sudan, 2015 , 68 min. Thursday Evening Documentary Films Sponsored by EAI Information Systems This film event is a collaboration with the award-winning documentary series POV (www.pbs.org/pov) Sudan has been in an almost constant state of civil war since it achieved independence in 1956 and split into a pair of sovereign states in 2011. On the border between the two, Russian-made Antonov planes indiscriminately drop bombs on settlements in the Nuba Mountains below. Yet, incredibly, the people of the Blue Nile respond to adversity with music, singing and dancing to celebrate their survival. Beats of the Antonov explores how music binds a community together, offering hope and a common identity for refugees engaged in a fierce battle to protect cultural traditions and heritage from those trying to obliterate them.

Seen through the eyes of small, midsize and large Mexican maize producers, SUNÚ knits together different stories from a threatened rural world. It journeys deep into the heart of a country where people realize their determination to stay free, to work the land and cultivate their seeds, to be true to their cultures and forms of spirituality, all in a modern world that both needs them and despises them. SUNÚ reveals how maize and everything it gives life to could be lost forever, and shares a generous tapestry of simple, heartfelt messages for the farmers of the world and the city dwellers who could lose the capability to make important choices unless they act soon. Speical musical guest Edna Vazquez will perform before the film. More information and tickets at www.portlandecofilmfest.org The Portland EcoFilm Festival is the premier environmental film festival in the US Pacific Northwest, showcasing the very best films about nature, the environment, outdoor pursuits and eco-conscious living.

THE BODA BODA THIEVES Directed by Donald Mugisha Uganda, 2015 , 85 min. The Boda Boda Thieves is the latest film by Donald Mugisha, whose earlier film Divisionz screened at the 20th CFAF in 2010. This film is his Ugandan homage to the classic Italian neorealist film The Bicycle Thief (1948) by Vittorio De Sica. A boda boda is a motorcycle taxi and is the only way to get around in Uganda. The term originates from the English words “border-to-border” and is also a metaphor for finding a way around obstacles. The film is about a small family eking out a living in one of the ghettos of Kampala, Uganda’s capital city: a father, mother and their 15-year-old son Abel, who some years ago left their rural village in the footsteps of thousands of other villagers from around the country in search of a better life in the city. They have not had an easy time of it. When Abel’s father sustains an injury as a boda boda driver, he is forced to turn over the keys to his inexperienced son so he can earn money for the family to live on and, more importantly, to continue paying the debt they owe on the boda boda. Things soon go very wrong. In Luganda with English subtitles. Not suitable for children.

Cygnet Productions announces the premier of its original adaptation of J.M. March’s rhyming epic The Set-Up, at Shaking-the-Tree Theater. Written by the author of The Wild Party (previously produced by Cygnet), The Set-Up, a Jazz Age melodrama, tells a tale of savagery in the boxing ring with nervous, rapidly moving, rhyming couplets. In performance, the piece takes on an ambience and quality unlike anything most have ever seen onstage. Imagine the world of Damon Runyon presented by Homer, in the format of an epic poem, yet, like Moliere, in rhyming couplets. The play takes place in Hell's Kitchen during the late 1920s. It focuses on a black boxer, an imminent champion, whose return to the ring is secretly set up for defeat. Atmospheric, colorful, humorous, and tragic, The Set-Up draws you into a time when boxing, like baseball, was a number one spectator sport. With its unforgiving authenticity and rich detail of character, The Set-Up is a work whose violent action has both root and logic in the characters themselves.

Linnton Creek is a principle stream in Forest Park, one of the main trail heads in the north end of the park, and its confluence with the Willamette River will have a new lagoon, as part of the the 27 acre Linnton Plywood Mill site's restoration as animal habitat (a Superfund mitigation site). We are restoring the creek trail head, removing ivy and blackberry, planting natives, and installing an interpretive sign, trash can and custom (and amusing) dog waste bag dispenser designed by noted artist Ivan McLean. Part of a broad effort to eliminate dog waste from the park, this site is particularly important as the creek will flow into a new lagoon designed as a resting place for salmon fry, where clean water will be crucial. At the moment the main effort is ivy removal and the planting of almost 300 native plants. Hot and cold beverages, pastries, tools and gloves are provided. We'll be having a celebration of the project's completion in June. Activities include: Invasive Plant Removal, Native Planting.

INTORE / THE CHOSEN Thursday Evening Documentary Films Thursday Evening Documentary Films This documentary offers a powerful and rare look at how Rwanda survived its tragic past by regaining its identity through music, dance, and the resilience of a new generation. It’s a story of triumph, survival, hope, and a lesson in how to forgive and live, through the eyes of a mother whose grief gives hope; an artist who chose to forgive rather than seek revenge; a maestro who brings together the National Ballet with an incredible touch of genius; and a young man whose determination and hard work has given the Rwandan culture a new dimension of identity and celebration. Viewers will bear witness to how the nation rose above the ashes of a horrific 1994 genocide to become a world model of post-conflict peace and unity. The film features music performances from Rwanda’s top traditional and commercial artists in music and dance, interwoven with poignant interviews from genocide survivors and perpetrators who sit side-by-side, Rwandan leaders, legends and Hollywood elite. Intore won the 2014 International Film Festival Federation Humanitarian Award. In English. Not suitable for children.

RUN Centerpiece Film at Hollywood Theater Directed by Philippe Lacôte Côte d'Ivoire, 2014 , 102 min. Centerpiece Film Sponsored by Portland State University Black Studies Department In Philippe Lacôte’s remarkable debut feature film Run, he depicts the recent tumultuous history of the Ivory Coast through the journey of his protagonist Run, so-named because as Run explains, “As life changes, I flee.” After assassinating the Prime Minister, Run seeks refuge at the home of his friend Assa (Isaach De Bankolé). While in hiding, he reflects upon the many paths that led him to this place: his childhood apprenticeship with the village rainmaker; his introduction to manhood with the food-eater entertainer Gladys; and his membership in the Young Patriots, a group of young men who mostly play at being revolutionaries but act more like thugs. With an impassioned, poetic eye, the film charts how much the country has changed in the last 20 years, and in the process changed the man named Run. The story is a strong allegory for the people and history of contemporary Ivory Coast. In French with English subtitles. Not suitable for children.

Cygnet Productions announces the premier of its original adaptation of J.M. March’s rhyming epic The Set-Up, at Shaking-the-Tree Theater. Written by the author of The Wild Party (previously produced by Cygnet), The Set-Up, a Jazz Age melodrama, tells a tale of savagery in the boxing ring with nervous, rapidly moving, rhyming couplets. In performance, the piece takes on an ambience and quality unlike anything most have ever seen onstage. Imagine the world of Damon Runyon presented by Homer, in the format of an epic poem, yet, like Moliere, in rhyming couplets. The play takes place in Hell's Kitchen during the late 1920s. It focuses on a black boxer, an imminent champion, whose return to the ring is secretly set up for defeat. Atmospheric, colorful, humorous, and tragic, The Set-Up draws you into a time when boxing, like baseball, was a number one spectator sport. With its unforgiving authenticity and rich detail of character, The Set-Up is a work whose violent action has both root and logic in the characters themselves.

In Portland, you gotta love the rain, and loving the rain is what this ride is all about! Portland's Bureau of Environmental Services works to manage storm water in a variety of ways. On this ride we will visit some of the more aesthic ways storm water is managed in Portland, stopping to admire ecoroofs, rain gardens and bioswales, plus we'll learn how these methods help improve bicycle paths in our neighborhoods. We will ride at a comfortable talking pace for the group. The ride will mostly follow neighborhood greenways with some sections on multi-use paths and bike lanes on busier roads. We will ride rain or shine, so this is a great route to practice your wet/cold weather riding skills if you are new to winter biking. Please dress appropriately for the ride, bring water and snacks. We will conclude our ride at Hair of the Dog Brewery at 61 SE Yamhill St. This ride is open to all women, female-identifying, trans, and gender-nonconforming people who enjoy biking (or think that they might).

For the 28th anniversary of Winterfolk, Portland's largest annual folk music event and a benefit for Sisters of the Road, we are privileged to welcome headliner singer-songwriter, author, and social activist David Roth. Hailing from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, David has touched folks from all over the world with his evocative songs and stories over the last 30 years. From performing his song "Earth" for the fortieth anniversary of the United Nations, to singing his "Rising in Love" at Carnegie Hall for its centennial celebration, he has made a profound impact on the musical conscience of this nation. Also on the playbill is local luminary Casey Neill, who has taken his blend of celtic, folk and contemporary sounds and hard hitting lyrics to audiences from New York City to his Pacific Northwest base. Dan Rhiger and Rahmana Weist, better known as Sky in the Road, will lend their melodious, world music influenced songs and voices to the Winterfolkstage. Also featured at the 28th edition of this Portland tradition will be Dan Weber, a singer/storyteller who has been a Kerrville, Texas festival favorite and has been touring the U.S. extensively with his spirited ballads. Rounding out this year’s sterling Winterfolk lineup will be Kelly Bosworth, a young woman who positively shines on stage as she sings, along with some eloquent offerings from master songsmith Paul Sanchez. Richard Colombo will emcee Winterfolk this year, and also contribute a song or two from his lifetime of commitment to this "music that matters". A favorite part of the annual tradition, Portland's Artichoke Music is once again donating a guitar for the Winterfolk raffle, which will join a day of recording at Billy Oskay's Big Red Studio as the prize for some lucky winner. Raffle tickets will be available at Artichoke Music and at the Aladdin Theater the night of the concert. Winterfolk is one of those rare expressions of giving which brings disparate parts of our area together, in the common cause of music and a sure knowledge that every dollar raised at the door goes to the people it is intended to help. Sisters of the Road Cafe quietly continues to do its work of providing low cost and no cost meals in Portland’s Old Town neighborhood. Founded in 1979, Sisters Of The Road uses nonviolence to support community driven solutions to the calamities of homelessness and poverty. Sisters' cafe is open to everyone, serving low cost, hot, nutritious meals. It remains a shining example of reaching out and helping to change people's lives through food and friendship.

triangle productions! is proud to present the West Coast Premiere of WHAT EVERY GIRL SHOULD KNOW Directed by Donald Horn Written by Monica Byrne In a Catholic reformatory in 1914, three teenage girls (Anne, Theresa, and Lucy) pass the time with masturbation rituals, though they're innocent of the "sinful" nature of their act. Then a belligerent new girl, Joan, shows up, bearing illegal contraband: birth control materials distributed by the woman's rights activist Margaret Sanger [founder of Planned Parenthood]. The girls start reading the material and jokingly pretend to venerate Sanger as a saint, but then undergo a profound conversion experience.

Cygnet Productions announces the premier of its original adaptation of J.M. March’s rhyming epic The Set-Up, at Shaking-the-Tree Theater. Written by the author of The Wild Party (previously produced by Cygnet), The Set-Up, a Jazz Age melodrama, tells a tale of savagery in the boxing ring with nervous, rapidly moving, rhyming couplets. In performance, the piece takes on an ambience and quality unlike anything most have ever seen onstage. Imagine the world of Damon Runyon presented by Homer, in the format of an epic poem, yet, like Moliere, in rhyming couplets. The play takes place in Hell's Kitchen during the late 1920s. It focuses on a black boxer, an imminent champion, whose return to the ring is secretly set up for defeat. Atmospheric, colorful, humorous, and tragic, The Set-Up draws you into a time when boxing, like baseball, was a number one spectator sport. With its unforgiving authenticity and rich detail of character, The Set-Up is a work whose violent action has both root and logic in the characters themselves.

The Mask You Live In is a documentary that follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. This event is FREE and is brought to you by the PSU Student Alliance for Sexual Safety and Reimagine Masculinity. Pizza and popcorn provided! The film starts at about 6:00 PM and will run till about 7:45 PM, but all attendees are invited to stay afterward for an informal discussion about the film. The film can be a pretty emotional experience, so please come prepared to be kind and respectful to others. ::::: TRAILER https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hc45-ptHMxo ::::: FULL SYNOPSIS The Mask You Live In is a documentary that follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men. Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the “boy crisis” and tactics to combat it. The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men. http://www.facebook.com/events/1278761455473478/

"The Fall of Libya" A short documentary of the role imperialism played violently and illegally overthrowing the democratically elected Libyan Jamihiriya government led by Muammar Qaddafi in 2011. The All African People's Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) is hosting its annual discussion events as a way of informing discussion about the worldwide struggle for Pan-Africanism, which we define as one unified socialist Africa. We believe Pan-Africanism is the key to the problems facing over 900 million Africans who are scattered and suffering in 113 countries. We also believe Pan-Africanism is our contribution to the worldwide movement for peace, justice, and scientific socialism. Also, don't forget that the A-APRP feeds children every Monday and Friday at Colombia International Cup Coffee Shop in N. Portland. Look for us to expand our work with other local organizations in New Columbia to help build an independent African school there. Contact us at www.aaaprporegon.org for more information.

LAMB Directed by Yared Zeleke Ethiopia, 2015 , 94 min. Ephraim is a young Ethiopian boy, a farmer’s son whose mother has died. His father leaves him and his pet sheep in the care of distant relatives who live far from their home region. His uncle soon learns that Ephraim is not good at farm work but has a talent for cooking, something he highly disapproves of in a boy. When his uncle tells him they have to sacrifice his sheep for the next religious feast, Ephraim will do anything to save his best friend and return home safely with him. The film’s gorgeous cinematography showcases Ethiopia’s spectacular Bale Mountains, the people and their everyday way of life. Lamb premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and has the honor of being the first Ethiopian film selected to show at Cannes. In Amharic with English subtitles.

Two high school girls are in trouble for their “peculiar” relationship; a young DVD seller enters a clandestine gay bar, hoping his homophobic friend doesn’t find out about it; a farmhand is tormented when his crush starts courting a woman; a young man is about to live out his dream of having sex with a white man (note: the scene is tastefully filmed and is not explicit); and a woman dreams of living with her partner somewhere where anti-gay laws don’t exist. These are the stories that were told by Kenyans who identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex and now comprise this beautifully rendered anthology film. Stories of Our Lives started out as an archival project by the multi-disciplinary NEST Collective, who turned the testimonies given into five funny, endearing and sometimes heartbreaking vignettes. Unfortunately, but predictably, the Kenyan government banned the film on the grounds of promoting homosexuality. In Swahili and English with English subtitles. Not suitable for children.

Then a belligerent new girl, Joan, shows up, bearing illegal contraband: birth control materials distributed by the woman's rights activist Margaret Sanger [founder of Planned Parenthood]. The girls start reading the material and jokingly pretend to venerate Sanger as a saint, but then undergo a profound conversion experience.

LES PETITS CHATS Thursday Evening Documentary Films Directed by Sherif Nakhla Egypt, 2014 , 80 min. Thursday Evening Documentary Films Sherif Nakhla’s documentary takes viewers back to Egypt’s “Golden Age” of the 60s and 70s where crowds in the thousands danced the night away to legendary Egyptian cover band Les Petits Chats. Singing American and European hits to packed nightclubs and walking the streets like “seven Elvises”, band members navigate music and fame through wars, protests and a drastically shifting cultural and political landscape. Although they took different paths after the band’s breakup in the 80s, in 2009 they were brought together for one final concert. Six members, all major celebrities and musicians now, play to a packed house of people nostalgic for better times and looking for an escape to the conditions of pre-revolution Egypt. The band leader Wagdi Francis’s niece (and new CFAF coordinator) Tracy Francis will lead the post-film discussion. In Arabic with English subtitles. Not suitable for children.

Cygnet Productions announces the premier of its original adaptation of J.M. March’s rhyming epic The Set-Up, at Shaking-the-Tree Theater. Written by the author of The Wild Party (previously produced by Cygnet), The Set-Up, a Jazz Age melodrama, tells a tale of savagery in the boxing ring with nervous, rapidly moving, rhyming couplets. In performance, the piece takes on an ambience and quality unlike anything most have ever seen onstage. Imagine the world of Damon Runyon presented by Homer, in the format of an epic poem, yet, like Moliere, in rhyming couplets. The play takes place in Hell's Kitchen during the late 1920s. It focuses on a black boxer, an imminent champion, whose return to the ring is secretly set up for defeat. Atmospheric, colorful, humorous, and tragic, The Set-Up draws you into a time when boxing, like baseball, was a number one spectator sport. With its unforgiving authenticity and rich detail of character, The Set-Up is a work whose violent action has both root and logic in the characters themselves.

Restoring headwater habitat, the habitat at the source of a river or stream, is an important part of the waterway restoration process. Wilkes Creek flows into the Columbia Slough, so its protection is part of a greater effort to keep the Slough healthy. We’ll plant native plants and protect them with mulch. We’ll also care for previously planted plants by weeding and mulching and removing invasive species like English ivy and Himalayan blackberry. Students in our SERVE (Students Engaged in Restoring Vital Ecosystems) program have adopted this site for their field science experience. Parents and students are encouraged to visit the site again during this event! This event runs rain or shine! Be sure to dress for the weather and bring water, rain gear and sturdy shoes. Snacks, tools, training and gloves will be provided. Activities include: Invasive Plant Removal, Litter Cleanup, Native Planting.

Ma Olsen ran a small grocery store in downtown Linnton for much of the first half of the twentieth century. During the Depression she forgave bills, feeding folks in need. Her store was bulldozed in the early 60s, along with most of the buildings lining St Helens Road in Linnton, to widen the highway from two lanes to four. Not long after this Nora “Ma” Olsen, while crossing the highway, was hit, and killed by a car. A plaque, bench, and a Benson Bubbler were placed where the back of her store had been, and that swath of hill was named Ma Olsen’s Garden. Forty-five years after her death, the steep hillside that was her Garden was overgrown with ivy, blackberry, and a tangle of fallen trees. We removed the thick green shroud that covered the garden and planted hundreds of native shrubs and flowers of over fifty species. Most of the five block long, seventy-five foot wide sliver of land, of which the Garden is the southern tip, remained buried under invasives. Why not extend the project north, since Linnton as “hanging garden” was the goal to begin with? So we roll along, the past two winters extending the garden another block, planting as we go. It’s gnarly work, with established ivy, blackberry, vinca and laurel on rocky, steep, uneven slopes. Uncovering old stone walls, terraces, mundane and weird trash heaps, and poison oak keeps the work interesting, sometimes too much so. We’re incubating plans for an tongue-in-cheek sculpture/Dr. Seuss garden in this section. We should be able to polish off the remaining weeds this winter, but we need an infusion of help and laughter. Activities include: Invasive Plant Removal.

Attention Oregon! Skip across the border for some SW Washington style restoration work! We will be focusing on the removal of invasive plant, shining geranium in a deforested area in the center of the woods at LeRoy Haagen Park. We hope to completely remove this invasive species before April so chemical treatments will not be necessary. People enjoy hanging out in this area and too frequently leave their litter behind. The hope is to return the area to its intended purpose of habitat and a nature trail for walkers and joggers. This is a great activity for young children and the young at heart. Please contact if you feel you have special needs but would still like to volunteer. Please contact as well if you are interested in coordinating these monthly efforts at the park.

For the fourth year running, RACC is proud to bring the whole PDX music scene together at Happening! 2016. Just like last year, we're inviting Portland's musicians, bookers, managers, music writers, label owners, and the various characters who make music happen in this town. Last time around, we made some connections, opened some doors, and learned some tricks. We're doing it again, and we'll have the same program that made the first one such a success: •Experts leading small groups on topics like running a label, legal issues for artists, and booking shows •Veterans hosting a discussion on the urgent issues we're all facing as Portland music people •Maybe most importantly, sometime shoot the breeze with our old and new pals. Happening! 2016 will be an exploratory conversation about how music works around here, and how artists, professionals, and supporters shape the scene. We'll focus on the issues we all deal with - how do you get paid for the work you love when everything's changing? How do get good music out to the most people? But we'll have plenty of time to address everyone's individual questions, too. So bring your stories, questions, and ideas. Once again, we’ll bring snacks, beer, experts, and conversation.

350PDX Benefit Concert featuring Kathleen Dean Moore and Rachelle McCabe performing a program of words and music, with an interpretation of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “Variations on a Theme of Corelli.” Tickets are $8-$20 and will be available at the door and online (see above link) In this weaving of music and words, concert pianist Rachelle McCabe plays Rachmaninoff’s “Variations on a Theme from Corelli,” with its outpouring of descending chords giving voice to both grief and hope. Writer Kathleen Dean Moore weaves words into the silences between variations, calling on people to save Earth’s astonishing and sustaining lives.

triangle productions! is proud to present the West Coast Premiere of WHAT EVERY GIRL SHOULD KNOW Directed by Donald Horn Written by Monica Byrne In a Catholic reformatory in 1914, three teenage girls (Anne, Theresa, and Lucy) pass the time with masturbation rituals, though they're innocent of the "sinful" nature of their act. Then a belligerent new girl, Joan, shows up, bearing illegal contraband: birth control materials distributed by the woman's rights activist Margaret Sanger [founder of Planned Parenthood]. The girls start reading the material and jokingly pretend to venerate Sanger as a saint, but then undergo a profound conversion experience.

STORIES OF OUR LIVES Directed by Jim Chuchu Kenya, 2014 , 62 min. Two high school girls are in trouble for their “peculiar” relationship; a young DVD seller enters a clandestine gay bar, hoping his homophobic friend doesn’t find out about it; a farmhand is tormented when his crush starts courting a woman; a young man is about to live out his dream of having sex with a white man (note: the scene is tastefully filmed and is not explicit); and a woman dreams of living with her partner somewhere where anti-gay laws don’t exist. These are the stories that were told by Kenyans who identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex and now comprise this beautifully rendered anthology film. Stories of Our Lives started out as an archival project by the multi-disciplinary NEST Collective, who turned the testimonies given into five funny, endearing and sometimes heartbreaking vignettes. Unfortunately, but predictably, the Kenyan government banned the film on the grounds of promoting homosexuality. In Swahili and English with English subtitles. Not suitable for children.

Cygnet Productions announces the premier of its original adaptation of J.M. March’s rhyming epic The Set-Up, at Shaking-the-Tree Theater. Written by the author of The Wild Party (previously produced by Cygnet), The Set-Up, a Jazz Age melodrama, tells a tale of savagery in the boxing ring with nervous, rapidly moving, rhyming couplets. In performance, the piece takes on an ambience and quality unlike anything most have ever seen onstage. Imagine the world of Damon Runyon presented by Homer, in the format of an epic poem, yet, like Moliere, in rhyming couplets. The play takes place in Hell's Kitchen during the late 1920s. It focuses on a black boxer, an imminent champion, whose return to the ring is secretly set up for defeat. Atmospheric, colorful, humorous, and tragic, The Set-Up draws you into a time when boxing, like baseball, was a number one spectator sport. With its unforgiving authenticity and rich detail of character, The Set-Up is a work whose violent action has both root and logic in the characters themselves.

Cygnet Productions announces the premier of its original adaptation of J.M. March’s rhyming epic The Set-Up, at Shaking-the-Tree Theater. Written by the author of The Wild Party (previously produced by Cygnet), The Set-Up, a Jazz Age melodrama, tells a tale of savagery in the boxing ring with nervous, rapidly moving, rhyming couplets. In performance, the piece takes on an ambience and quality unlike anything most have ever seen onstage. Imagine the world of Damon Runyon presented by Homer, in the format of an epic poem, yet, like Moliere, in rhyming couplets. The play takes place in Hell's Kitchen during the late 1920s. It focuses on a black boxer, an imminent champion, whose return to the ring is secretly set up for defeat. Atmospheric, colorful, humorous, and tragic, The Set-Up draws you into a time when boxing, like baseball, was a number one spectator sport. With its unforgiving authenticity and rich detail of character, The Set-Up is a work whose violent action has both root and logic in the characters themselves.

Cygnet Productions announces the premier of its original adaptation of J.M. March’s rhyming epic The Set-Up, at Shaking-the-Tree Theater. Written by the author of The Wild Party (previously produced by Cygnet), The Set-Up, a Jazz Age melodrama, tells a tale of savagery in the boxing ring with nervous, rapidly moving, rhyming couplets. In performance, the piece takes on an ambience and quality unlike anything most have ever seen onstage.

Written by Bob Shields: Based on actual events, this landmark film depicts a strike by Mexican-American mineworkers in New Mexico. With the exception of five actors, the cast comprises non-professionals, mostly participants in the real-life strike. The film is remarkably prophetic in its portrayal of the wives of the oppressed workers which seem to anticipate the women's liberation movement that would rise over a decade later. Against a backdrop of social injustice, a riveting family drama is played out by the characters of Ramon and Esperanza Quintero, a Mexican-American miner and his wife. In the course of the strike, Ramon and Esperanza find their roles reversed: an injunction against the male strikers moves the women to take over the picket line, leaving the men to domestic duties. The women evolve from the men's subordinates into their allies and equals. SALT OF THE EARTH Director: Herbert J. Biberman Country: USA Year: 1954 Runtime: 94 minutes The film's very existence is the result of political struggle. In the history of Hollywood there are few films with a story behind its making as dramatically riveting as that of Salt of the Earth. Made during the height of the McCarthy era by a group of blacklisted filmmakers who were among the best and the brightest Hollywood talent of the day, Salt of the Earth is itself a powerful and emotionally charged feature-length film. For the first time, this disc tells the true story of this troubled production, while also allowing the user to meet the filmmakers, understand the historical background and view the film, all on the same disc. During production, the blacklisted cast and crew were subject to attacks by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) and other anti-Communist organizations. These attacks were misguided, however, as Salt of the Earth is now considered one of the most important American films in history. $7-10 suggested donation; no one turned away for lack of funds. KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music. A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.

Strike Debt Portland is in solidarity with the national movement Strike Debt, striving to abolish all forms of illegitimate debt. Strike Debt Portland has been organizing Debtors Assemblies for over two years. At these public gatherings we invite all peoples to share their debt experiences. Debt is something in our culture that gears individuals to feel isolation and stress. At Debtors Assemblies we hear about others' pressures from creditors and find none of us are in this alone. Sharing our stories empowers us to resolve the stigma of debt burdens; hence the Strike debt slogan “you are not a Loan.” If you have debt, or have managed to stay out of debt, come tell us on March 12th! We will introduce Strike Debt Portland at 3:30pm then open the floor for debtors to share their stories. Bring some food if you will for this potluck in a fellow debtors' backyard. We hope this event inspires you to have your own Assemblies! Join our Facebook Group called Strike Debt Portland http://www.facebook.com/events/952731008168362/

Help us keep our Bike Fleet in good condition and working order! Each year we teach thousands of Portland 4th and 5th graders to bike safely on the street with these bikes. They need routine maintenance every month to keep the parts working smoothly. So if you’ve got mechanic skills, come join us for some greasy fun on the third Saturday of every month from 10 am to 2 pm. Directions: It's on the NE corner of NE 21st Ct. and Pacific Avenue. It's just northeast of the Sunshine Dairy, but still south of I-84. Our shop entrance is on the NW corner of that block, through the chain link fence. Please sign up if you can make it and bring your own coffee cup if you like hot coffee! Thanks to Grand Central Bakery for providing snacks for us. *Maintenance Days are usually scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of every month from 10-2pm at the Parks Building. So mark your calendars and invite a handy friend!

In the third installment of the Portland edition of ONDA’s High Desert Speaker Series, Dr. Tom Connolly shares his experiences as one of Oregon’s preeminent cultural anthropologists. From incipient agriculture to paleoenvironmental studies and geoarchaeology to cultural resource management, Dr. Connolly has a special understanding of the high desert’s unique archaeological features. Archaeological work over the past two decades, and continuing study of museum collections made decades ago, are providing new insights on Oregon’s first peoples. Dr. Connolly outlines recent studies that have pushed back evidence for the earliest human presence in the region to about 15,000 years ago, and reviews museum specimens for a clearer understanding of the timing and range of key ancient cultural traditions. Join us as Dr. Connolly takes us on a journey thousands of years in the making. The event will take place at Portland's First Congregational Church, 1126 SW Park Avenue in the Park Blocks. The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited; please pre-register on Eventbrite.

"Assata Shakur talks about socialist development in Cuba." The former Black Panther and Black Liberation Army cadre who has had political asylum in Cuba since 1984, talks about socialist practices in Cuba, racism, patriarchy, and the way forward for socialist politics. The All African People's Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) is hosting its annual discussion events as a way of informing discussion about the worldwide struggle for Pan-Africanism, which we define as one unified socialist Africa. We believe Pan-Africanism is the key to the problems facing over 900 million Africans who are scattered and suffering in 113 countries. We also believe Pan-Africanism is our contribution to the worldwide movement for peace, justice, and scientific socialism. Also, don't forget that the A-APRP feeds children every Monday and Friday at Colombia International Cup Coffee Shop in N. Portland. Look for us to expand our work with other local organizations in New Columbia to help build an independent African school there. Contact us at www.aaaprporegon.org for more information. Here is the list of future screenings: Wed, Apr 27th - "Kwame Ture on zionism as Africa's Enemy" Smith 236 Wed, May 18th - "A Message from Women in Gambia" Smith 333

Dirty Queer is an X rated open mic: a place to celebrate sexuality and strut your creative stuff! Hosted by renegade writer and poet Sossity Chiricuzio, Dirty Queer has proven itself to be a thought provoking evening of excitement, passion, laughter and full body shivers. We're looking for queer erotic entertainers of all sorts: dancers, jugglers, singers, musicians, comics, poets, storytellers, magicians, gender performers ... if you can do it in 5 minutes or less (w/ minimal props/equip), this open mic's for you!

Everyone who attends has a chance to win door prizes from local businesses, as well as a percentage off items at our very own feminist bookstore and host, IOW!

Help us keep our Bike Fleet in good condition and working order! Each year we teach thousands of Portland 4th and 5th graders to bike safely on the street with these bikes. They need routine maintenance every month to keep the parts working smoothly. So if you’ve got mechanic skills, come join us for some greasy fun on the third Saturday of every month from 10 am to 2 pm. Directions: It's on the NE corner of NE 21st Ct. and Pacific Avenue. It's just northeast of the Sunshine Dairy, but still south of I-84. Our shop entrance is on the NW corner of that block, through the chain link fence. Please sign up if you can make it and bring your own coffee cup if you like hot coffee! Thanks to Grand Central Bakery for providing snacks for us. *Maintenance Days are usually scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of every month from 10-2pm at the Parks Building. So mark your calendars and invite a handy friend!

"Kwame Ture Talks about zionism being Africa's enemy." Kwame Ture, formally known as Stokely Carmichael, gives a talk on the zionist movement, the difference between zionism and Judaism, and the role zionism plays in destabilizing the African liberation movement and why. The All African People's Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) is hosting its annual discussion events as a way of informing discussion about the worldwide struggle for Pan-Africanism, which we define as one unified socialist Africa. We believe Pan-Africanism is the key to the problems facing over 900 million Africans who are scattered and suffering in 113 countries. We also believe Pan-Africanism is our contribution to the worldwide movement for peace, justice, and scientific socialism. Also, don't forget that the A-APRP feeds children every Monday and Friday at Colombia International Cup Coffee Shop in N. Portland. Look for us to expand our work with other local organizations in New Columbia to help build an independent African school there. Contact us at www.aaaprporegon.org for more information.
